"a Forest Giant", Michal Matczak (2D)

Title: "a Forest Giant"
Name: Michal Matczak
Country: Poland
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Done in 4 days, a couple of hours each day. Tried to follow Neville Page's workflow and his attention to details from his Gnomon DVD on rendering Wildebeast. It's really hard, I did my best, though... :(
I tried to keep it sketchy look, yet kinda finished, not to overbalance it with too much details, too.
Any comments and/or advices would be much appreciated. :)

EDIT: Added some textures, a background and some retouching, tried to make it look more finished. Hope you like it.

Waheed, TR.HaDEs - thanks for commentsand appreciation.

As I look at it today, I think I'll need to imrpove it, some changes to hair and the background is emtpy. I think I'll add some jungle to it... I'm off to work!

Very nice character and style

nice, but i think his head is too small compared with the rest of his body. And as you said a jungle background would probably be good too...

BlinCk - thanks

packinpah - you're right, I overdid it. I wanted to add the scale to it, so he would look enormous. I'll be corrected in the update. Thanks.
